Prosthesis protection - easier than prosthesis removal, and you can stand up in the shower, or in the waves.
Immediate post-op hydrotherapy - prevent swelling from developing, increase joint mobility, speed recovery. Used by physical therapists and trainers for professional athletes.
XeroSox Waterproof Cast Protector Waterproof Body Protection XeroSox Waterproof Cast Protector fits snugly and comfortably, telling you that it is maintaining an airtight, absolutely waterproof seal before you even get in the water. There are no surprises. You feel this watertight seal while you are showering, bathing, or even swimming and splashing about. It fits so well, you can t even pull it off! All other cast protectors are loose bags that just try to keep water out with a tight cuff. You can t tell if they are leaking or not, and when they move around or slip down, you get a leak. Not good enough. XeroSox Safe Nonslip Sole: The unique nonslip molded sole is specially designed for smooth, wet, slippery surfaces. And because the nonslip tread is fitted snugly against the foot and cast, there is no slipping around inside XeroSox either. The foot covered with XeroSox actually has much better traction and stability than your bare foot.
